"The Push"

The Push
By Alan Cohen

Last night, I headed out to the Barley House to celebrate the Mavs first Western Conference Title. Turns out that a brand new band called The Push was performing there and they blew me away. This was the first gig for the foursome (guitar, keys, bass, drums) led by guitarist Ryan Fitzgerald of The Polyphonic Spree. But it was the Push's drummer that stole the show for me. His beats were the centerpiece of a hard groove that kept songs fresh from start to finish. Just a fantastic job for a first show. I can't wait to hear more from these guys.

6 song demo EP recorded in Dec. 06 and Jan. 07.
12 song LP is currently being recorded and will be ready for release in October 2007.



Ryan Fitzgerald has spent the last seven years touring the world as the guitarist for Tim DeLaughter and the Polyphonic Spree. He's had the opportunity to perform on live national television, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, Jimmey Kimmel Live, the Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn, and the Austin City Limits Television Show. He could be seen jumping up and down with the Spree on the MTV Video Music Awards and on the NBC sitcom Scrubs. Over 200,000 people watched as he performed at the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts. His playing has been highlighted in SXSW showcases and industry A&R parties across the nation. During this time Fitzgerald honed his own songwriting skills and creativity while producing the seedling songs that would eventually become the signiture sound of the Push, incorporating catchy melodies, odd time signitures, and fresh perspectives on form and structure. Ryan recruited long time friend and veteran drummer Jay Henderson, friend and bassist Moody Fuquay, and Dr. Jonathan Hopkins to play keys. With a full band and a complete set of songs, The Push performed its first show at the Barley House in Dallas, TX on June 3, 2006. The band recorded a 6 song demo EP that was never formally released in Dec. 2006 - Jan. 2007 in Fuquay's living room. They are currently tracking and mixing some of these songs, along with several new ones, in a proper recording studio, for a full length LP that will be released in October 2007. The songs stem from a wide variety of influences ranging from Michael Jackson to The Cure, The Police, The Smiths, David Bowie, Blondie, and SoulHat.
